Anyone selling a Vespa ?
« : Utorak, 10. Veljača 2009, 23:44:58 »
Hi to everyone, and greetings from that tiny little country next to yours..!

I'm Manuel, from Chile, travelling around and currently stuck in Slovenia...! I'm looking for a Vespa for my girlfriend, a PX 125-150-200 would be great, we'd also be happy to take a look at any older Vespa too, depending on condition and documents etc (we'd have to register the Vespa in Italy, since I also have an Italian passport and it's where I "officially" live)

Thanks for any info, if there's a good website where I can look I'd much appreciate it.

Saludos amigos!

M.

hehe....Thanks! and very true...! The only way I'll ever separate myself from my PX will be by having my cold dead fingers removed from it ! ;)

However we'd like a second Vespa...which will also be loved and kept for a long long time!

Anyway , tonight I found some good links in the "buy/sell" section.

Hope to see you on the road somewhere!   :vekac:

Welcome Manuel!
Be careful when buying, make sure you are able to export it and register in Italy. I'm not sure how to do that if you buy it in Croatia. I would take Hrvoje's advice if I were you.
In any case, Croatia is a very good PX market if you are a buyer, every now and then something very interesting pops up (good condition - low price). From what we've heard from Slovenian members of our forum, we know they are more expensive in Slovenia.

HI everyone, thanks for the advice. The reason I'm not looking in Italy is that the market has gone crazy over there, and to be frank, I really prefer to deal with people in Slovenia/Croatia
(I have Italian/Chilean nationality, although my grandfather was Croatian).

In any case, registration is possible, with much patience although it's certainly not easy, however people in Trieste do this quite often.
We'll see what happens, I look forward to meeting up with you in future!

And where are you from Chile anyway. Been there a lot of times, mostly Valparaiso (had a great time there, a lot of free drinks on account of colo-colo`s croatian coach at that time), but my favourite place there is Arica, ......  :tmbr:
To be honest I do not remember seeing any vespas on the streets, so it`s nice to have a chilean vespista on our forum, .....

Hey....sorry I didn't check this forum until now..!

We have a big Croatian community in many towns in Chile, usually well organized with their "casa de la cultura ", my Grandfather came sometime just after  the first world war, although unfortunately I don't remember much about him. His documents say he was born in Zadar.

(Rafael, in which town do your relatives live? )

Anyway, in Chile I lived in Santiago, before I decided to come to Europe 4 years ago. Half of my family is from Arica,  and I worked around there for a long time:  it's also my favourite place!

Vespas were imported to Chile, but for some reason were never very popular, I once had a 125 primavera, and really regret that I sold it!  We also have a Vespa club in Santiago,(run by a guy called Radislav Biskupovic Dimitrijvic).

Thanks for the welcomes!

Saludos!

M.

Mainly Arica but also all over Chile and Argentina (I have many relatives, all four of my grandparents had a lot of brothers and sisters :D:). Their last names are Culjak, Cepo, Boban, Artukovic, Luburic, Petrovic...
